- As noted, SmackDown Women's Champion Natalya broke a pay-per-view singles record set by WWE Hall of Famer Trish Stratus with her match against Charlotte Flair at WWE Hell In a Cell last night. Trish gave these comments to her website on the record:
"I'm not surprised, Nattie is hands down the hardest working WWE Superstar male or female! In the ring she is as solid as it gets, as a performer she always delivers, and she is a excellent representative of not only the company but of woman in wrestling. She truly exemplifies what you can accomplish through hard work and what can happen when you follow your passion. And it is for all of those reasons and more that I have always said following my retirement, that I wish I had worked with Nattie."
